Zechariah Dzegede (Reserve)

rider
A motorbike race and computer programmer, reserve rider Zechariah Dzegede is based in Japan and competes in the All-Japan Road Race Championship. That might sound an unusual combination but when Zechariah studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at New York’s Cornell University, he was part of the college’s Absolute Zero breakdancing crew and Cornell Longboarding club. With his skills on the escooter and his engineering expertise, Zech will be one to watch as he makes his debut in the championship racing for PLAYR:1.

Matis Neyroud

Rider
Extreme action sports fan and first person to win a eSC Championship Final. Growing up on the banks of Lake Geneva means there's a rideable hill in every direction and young Matis first built his skills at controlling a scooter at high speed on his daily route home from school. Surrounded by the beautiful Swiss countryside and with the Alps on his doorstep, Matis would later swap two wheels for snowboard, skis and even snow scooters. He grew up developing a love for high-speed and freestyle action sports and his passion took him to Barcelona where he spent two years sharing an apartment with fellow eSC rider Alexis Letellier. But earlier this year, the 20-year-old returned to his home town of Saint-Légier-La Chiésaz, close to the vineyard owned by his father and brother. In 2020, he won the best trick of the year – a backflip 180 off a rail from the side of the scooter. It was a world first and to this day, no one has repeated the stunt. But Matis’s bravery at speed has resulted in his share of accidents. In one crash, last May he broke a bone close to his ear, which has resulted in tinnitus to this day. “I have so much regret about this accident because I didn’t wear a helmet. It was so stupid and I was nearly paralysed,” says Matis. “I’m very lucky.”

Chelsea Gowland

Rider
British Women’s Motocross Champion. You need to be brave to compete in Motocross. When Chelsea Gowland landed awkwardly after a jump in a European round of the FIM Women’s Motocross Championship in 2017, she realised immediately she’d hurt herself. After slowing slightly, Chelsea knew she could continue through the pain barrier and accelerated away to score a podium. Only after the chequered flag did it become apparent she had broken her ankle. “I felt straight away that my ankle had snapped,” she says. “At least it was a clean fracture. It didn’t need pins.” Chelsea and her older brothers have been bike-mad since childhood. In fact, she could ride an MX bike before she could cycle. Whether she was competing at her local tracks in Preston or Doncaster in the north west of England, or further afield, the Manchester-born rider was a natural on two wheels. She quickly rose through the national ranks, unfazed about being the only female starter in a 40-bike field until she reached an age where categories where split according to gender. “When I was younger the boys hated it when I beat them,” says Chelsea. “It made me want to beat them even more.” In 2018, she raced in the IMBA (International Motor Bike Association) at the Ladies European championship 2018 with the Great Britain team and finished second overall. In the same year she also became British Women’s Motocross Champion, a feat she repeated the following season. Alongside her eSC commitments, Chelsea is continuing in the BWMA Championship in 2022.

Antoine Magalhaes

Rider
Moded a scooter and rode it across the English Channel. Inspired by the trickery and daredevil action of YouTubers Dude Perfect and MrBeast, Antoine Magalhaes picked up a camera and a scooter and started making his own videos. Ten years on and the Parisian has 1.5million subscribers and credits his success to focussing on freestyle scootering. But that hasn’t stopped him taking on ever-more outlandish challenges. In one video he built a modified aquatic scooter and rode it solo across the English Channel. The feat took a mere eight hours…Fresh-faced and full of energy, Antoine prides himself on his healthy lifestyle and clean living. He runs 10K each morning and has competed in volleyball, taekwondo and table tennis. His proudest moment was when demonstrated his scooter skills for the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires. The Frenchman is also an entrepreneur, selling clothes and accessories through his Scoot 2 Street (S2S) brand who at the age of 18, he took off around the world, with little more than a backpack and visited skate parks in China, Australia, the USA and across Europe. Now living in the Paris suburb of Champigny-sur-Marne, Antonie says he’s always looking to push himself. “The bigger the challenge, the better,” he says with a broad grin.
